  2. My test came back negative, thankfully. Of course, the very next sentence after they say "negative" was to say "that doesn't mean you're not infected. It just means that no evidence of the virus was present in the sample at the time you took your test". They then point out that if the the test was done very early after being exposed, it may not show up yet on the test, and a few other situations that could result in a false negative test result. Doesn't instill a great deal of confidence. However, I still have no symptoms and feel pretty certain that I'm not infected. I'm still being ve
  3. My course in Florida has been open throughout the pandemic, and I haven't missed playing much except for weather or to rest my sore back. For the most part, the members and especially my regular group of about 20 or so have been great about being careful to give each other space, and the course had some excellent on-course rules in place to keep us safe--no rakes, pin left in , one to a cart, etc. Of course, the grill/restaurant was closed until just recently when the state began relaxing the social distancing requirements. Upon reopening, they did an excellent job of keeping us reasonably
  4. The feedback so far on the wear issue on the black finish is huge for me. I had high hopes that the 710's would hold up better, especially since Ping got so much negative feedback on the 700's wear and they weren't even black. I'll probably have a hard time rationalizing the price point on these as a result. Still will probably demo/test/get fit for them. If they were significantly better performing than any of my other sets, I might be able to put up with the cosmetic issue. LOL
  5. I don't think I've ever had a Bag Boy Bag before. My last few have been Sun Mountain's, which are good bags as well. But, based on how your old one has held up, Randy, and the features the new one has, I'm sure I'll take a look at these next time i have the need. Nice reviews. Thanks to all.
  6. You're on point on getting fitted for these, and it is my plan. I compared the regular lofts of the 710 with my current Cleveland gamers and my previous TaylorMade M2's. The 710's are very close to the Clevelands (exact same on all but the 6-7-8 which are .5 stronger in the Pings). The M2's are stronger than the regular 710 lofts, and the Power Spec lofts are about .5 stronger than the M2's across the set.
  7. Thanks for the feedback. Great write-up today, man. Loved the pics. Happy to hear the early results you're seeing on finish durability. We'll keep an eye on that.
  8. Other than the dirt build up in the numbers, it looks like you guys are seeing decent wear with the black finish on these after the first few rounds. I was all set last year to grab a set of G700's, but saw a lot negative feedback on wear issues even after just a couple of rounds. I love the look of these G710's, but frankly have not seen many irons with a black finish hold up well. I'm hoping Ping has found the answer with these. You guys are doing a great job on the reviews here. I really appreciate the insight. These are high on my radar this year. A question for y'all. I'm
  9. I've been playing the Maxfli Tour ball for awhile now...well, since last year's MSG Ball Testing. I have a bit of nostalgia for the brand since I played the Maxfli Blue Max back when I started playing golf. Tells you about how old I am (76) haha. I have to say this is one of the most underrated balls on the market, especially when you consider you can pick them up for as low as $17.50/doz. if you're patient and wait for Dick's BOGO sales. I mean where can you find a urethane golf ball for that price, and the ball's performance is as good as any I've played

  12. Picked up a couple dozen at Academy Sports today. My store still had a decent stock and were the same deal--$10/doz for Soft Feel and Q Star, $20/doz for Q-Star Tour and Z Star. Hard to beat this deal.
